TF6.7.2 SBIR Coral Abundance Challenge - CSIRO feasibility
This project focuses on developing alternative methods of collecting and distributing coral larvae, thereby providing the means for increasing coral settlement and assisting gene flow between isolated populations. Slicks have previously been harvested successfully to provide enhanced recruitment but only at small, experimental scales. The project will compare mechanisms for large scale harvesting of coral spawn slicks for deployment on reefs targeted for restoration. These methods would ultimately be used on large vessels such as commercial trailing suction hopper dredges to harvest large quantities of coral spawn and retain larvae on board until they are settlement-competent and able to be effectively deployed onto target reefs.
